    I'm looking to get a new pair of jeans (I usually just go levis and quiksilver). Can anything be had at full retail for under $100? Please list. I know I can go to the discount shops, but I'm looking for just straight retail prices.

    Out of curiosity, I just picked up a pair of GAP's Morrison selvage jeans for $60 CDN. I usually slag the GAP, and I'm sure most posters do as well here but these aren't that bad. I have limited availablity of the good stuff here (still haven't found a pair of Nudie RR's in my size, or any APC to try on), but depending on where you live, I'm sure you can do better.

    What type of fit are you looking for?

    Saw these too but the fit is bunk and they come with really fake lookin distressing on the "raw" version.

    under $100 at full retail, I like the Levis 514 slim straights ($35-45)

    if you want something real skinny you can get Cheap mondays for $75

    I know zilch about bootcuts and flarez

    Gap's recently launched a slim fit. I know absolutely nothing about it, but the pictures on the site look surprisingly decent. Prices are stupidly high, but it's the Gap: those'll fall eventually.

    I've seen these go on Ebay for around $70USD but haven't had the time/balls to try them on at a gap because of the look of the rise.

    Uniqlo is decent for $40. Levis 514 are a hit among my non fashion-plate friends. H&M is cool if you can find something that doesn't look like it was dragged behind a pickup truck driving cross country with open vats of bleach in the back.

    I'd say the levis are your best bet.

    go to JCPenney's. they really do have a great selection of Levi's that are usually on sale. last time i was there, the shrink-to-fit 501s were like $35-40.

    you can pick up RRL's for cheap (40-60 bucks) on ebay the sizing is kinda finicky so make sure to ask for actual measurements instead of relying on the tagged size, but the fit is excellent as is the quality of the denim (on the one wash selvedge models at least, dont have experience with the others)

    Levis Store.

    and I'd second the recommendation for the RRL selvedge straight legs from eBay if you wanna dabble in taking measurements and hoping you like the fit.

    Yup, if they're not still on sale for $40. H&M was another good suggestion if you have one anywhere near your area. But my question is...why would you want to pay retail?
